The Master of Business Law (MBL) is a coursework degree for graduates with non-law or quasi-legal backgrounds wishing to attain postgraduate qualifications and knowledge of the law relevant to business. The degree is of relevance to those involved in the private, commercial, government or international sectors where business law issues are relevant to their employment such as finance, accounting, compliance, human resources and marketing professionals. It is also a valuable qualification for students seeking careers in those fields where knowledge of legal requirements is an advantage. 

The MBL may be undertaken full-time over 1 academic year or on a part-time basis. The MBL is comprised of 8 courses. All students are required to undertake three compulsory courses and five electives.

The MBL provides graduates with access to a range of business law subjects that allows for a program that can be tailored to the graduates needs. Graduates may complete a generalist degree or specialise in one of the following areas:

  • Corporate and Commercial Law
  • Corporate, Commercial and Taxation Law
  • Taxation Law
  • International Business and Economic Law
  • Innovation Law
  • Media and Technology Law

The MBL has three compulsory courses:

  1. TABL5511 Legal Foundations of Business (6 UOC)
  2. TABL5541 Corporations and Business Associations Law (6 UOC)
  3. LAWS8072 Legal Concepts, Research (6 UOC).
  4. A minimum of 2 of the 8 courses must be taken from an approved list of courses that contain a substantial research-based assessment component from the Research -Course Based List. The requirement to take two courses from the Research-Based Course List can, in the alternative, be satisfied if the student takes LAWS8423 Research Thesis: 6 uoc.

Not all electives are available every year or each semester. Other courses may be added as new courses are developed and changed.
